About the hotel

Thornham Hall is situated at the centre of the Thornham Estate. Thornham Hall has been the country seat of the Barons of Hartismere and Henniker for over three centuries. The estate itself has been greatly reduced in size since the last century, but it is still maintains a large modern farming operation and many beautiful, ancient woods.

The 20th century Thornham Hall is an elegant modern house which reflects its Tudor, Georgian and Victorian past. Thornham Hall has open fires, spacious rooms and fine porcelain and portraits. The surrounding stables by Lamb and the statuesque Victorian water tower add to the atmosphere. Thornham Hall, with its formal gardens, is set in the centre of magnificent parkland, designed originally in Tudor times by the Killegrews, courtiers to Henry VIII. The Victorians altered many of the Tudor aspects, including the drive, and planted some wonderful Wellingtonias and Cedars. Thornham Hall is part of an ancient estate, where there are over 10 miles of walks set in beautiful woods and farmland open to guests. There are also two lovely historic Thornham churches to visit, which are both within walking distance. Thornham is well placed for visits to the East Anglian countryside and coast. The towns of Diss, Bury St. Edmunds, Ipswich, Norwich, Woodbridge and Cambridge are all within easy reach. The historic centres of Lavenham, Long Melford and Framlingham can be reached by driving through lovely countryside. Large local country Houses such as Helmingham and Ickworth, Blickling and Fellbrigg are nearby. Thornham Guests interested in the North Norfolk coast and Broads, the seaside resorts of Aldeburgh and Southwold, Thetford Forest, and the coastal and inland bird reserves of East Anglia are well placed for day trips to these beauty spots. Garden lovers can revel in the delights of Bressingham, Blooms and the like, as well as visiting our own recently restored Thornham Walled Garden.

A nice relaxing stay

If you want a quiet stay with no TV and lot of country wood and meadows to walk around, this is the place for you.

The host was very friendly and we felt very welcome. It was a pity the was not an option of an evening meal although some excellent places to eat were recommended. There is no bar as such although you can purchase a bottle of wine or a glass of port.

Ideal setting for a relaxing and quiet stay in a large country estate

This B&B accomodation in Thornham hall is set in the middle of large gardens and parkland.

The view from our room was first class. Our host Lesley, Lady Henniker-Major made us feel very welcome and it was her attentiveness and personal attention to detail that made this stay much better than any country house hotels that we have stayed at. I've already started to recommend this to friends and colleagues .
